Welcome back to summer school!

We're open and ready for you, our rental books are available, and we have an exciting new feature---the RedShelf ebook---especially for distance education students (but those of you taking classes on campus can take advantage of RedShelf, too). If you're shopping for textbooks online, we can either hold them in store for you at no extra charge, or ship them to your home.

RedShelf: We're rolling out RedShelf ebooks in a big way for the summer. You'll find cards for these easy-to-use ebooks throughout the store. They're on our webpage in the ecommerce section, too, with drop down menus depending on the length of access time you purchase (many of these ebooks can be purchased for lifetime access). They're especially helpful for distance education students, since the activation codes are emailed to you as soon as we process your purchase! Or check it out at for ebooks organized by class.

Rental: Rental is ready and active, with a huge selection of books available for rent if you don't need to keep your textbooks. Check out our rental policy for summer.

Online Purchasing:  Just click on the "Buy Books" button above, or use this link and you'll be able to vist our e-commerce site. Feel free to use this interface to check book pricing and availability as well as purchasing. You can buy your books online and choose in-store pickup as your shipping option, and we'll hold your books here for you at no extra charge! Your credit card will not be charged until we process your order. It takes about twenty-four hours for us to pull and process your order at peak times at the start of the semester.

Short Term Student Book Account:  On financial aid?  Our Short Term Student Book Account might be just what you want.  Simply print out your ECU ebill showing your financial aid award, bring it and two alternate forms of payment in, and get your books before your financial aid is distributed.  Call us to find out more!
